LLI Loses a Leader

Dorothy Hyde Martin

OCTOBER 28, 1937 – SEPTEMBER 15, 2021


Lifetime Learning Institute (LLI) of Austin was fortunate to have attracted Dorothy’s attention beginning in 1991 when she joined our ranks as an LLI student to satisfy her insatiable pursuit of knowledge. Those experiences grew to her involvement with LLI’s leadership when in 2007, she joined LLI’s Advisory Council.  From that time forward, the organization benefited from her vast knowledge, life and work experience, and her pursuit of excellence.  Dorothy was often the first to volunteer for committee work and never shied from sharing her opinion and knowledge. In 2007 she became the Director of LLI and served in that capacity until 2011. She was a master at identifying potential volunteers and encouraging them to take on leadership roles.  She continued leadership in the position of Immediate Past Director until mid-2021. Dorothy loved antiques and shared her knowledge and skills by developing and conducting courses in that arena for a number of semesters.  In short, Dorothy was a force.  She will be sorely missed but has left an indelible imprint on LLI.

Dorothy led a rich, exciting and sometimes challenging life and is an inspiration to all she touched. We invite you to read her full obituary at Dorothy Martin Obituary - Austin, TX (dignitymemorial.com)
